Housing First evictions

These eviction filings are all Tenderloin Housing Clinic, a non profit that is exclusively Housing First supportive housing for the chronically homeless in San Francisco

These records tell a very different story than what advocates have been telling the public for the last 15 years. It is also becoming clear that over the course of 15 years, Tenderloin Housing Clinic has evicted more people than they house

more evictions can be found here and here and here

One of the main problems with statistics the government officials keep repeating is that Housing First has an occupancy rate of 94%. What they don’t mention is that this percentage is for a single point in time. Any idiot landlord can fill a building to 94% for a single point in time, but if one looks at extended time periods, the story becomes very different

Many of the causes of this can be attributed to out of control drug abuse and sales in and around the buildings including getting new people addicted and making even more people homeless

Randy Shaw accused of racism in lawsuit

This lawsuit dates back a few years to 2014 and the original complaint is

Case Number: CGC 12 526406
Title: ANTONIO AMADO VAZ VS. TENDERLOIN HOUSING CLINIC, INC. et al
Cause of Action: WRONGFUL DISCHARGE

Randy Shaw is the head of Tenderloin Housing Clinic, the largest provider of supportive housing for the homeless in San Francisco. The organization receives more than 27 million dollars a year in local and federal funds which comprise nearly 100% of it’s budget

The lawsuit was settled with Randy Shaw signing off on an undisclosed payment of taxpayer money to the plaintiff

NOV-15-2013 LAW AND MOTION, 302, DEFENDANT TENDERLOIN HOUSING CLINIC, INC.’S DEMURRER TO 2ND AMENDED COMPLAINT IS OFF CALENDAR. NOTICE OF UNCONDITIONAL SETTLEMENT OF ENTIRE CASE FILED ON NOVEMBER 13, 2013. JUDGE: PETER J. BUSCH, CLERK: LESLEY FISCELLA, NOT REPORTED.

The racism allegation is one of many allegations in the lawsuit including threats, intimidation, harassment and retaliation of employees and tenants by the senior staff of Tenderloin Housing Clinic

This lawsuit is related to another lawsuit where Antonio Vaz is a tenant at the Mission Hotel, one of Tenderloin Housing Clinics master leased buildings (the other lawsuit is as an employee)

Some of the earliest complaints date back to 2012, and are easier to read and help explain better how this whole mess started

vaz.v.shaw.7.9.12 by Jeff Webb on Scribd

This is also related and cross referenced in this wrongful eviction case filed by Antonio Vaz and shows some of the underhanded ways Tenderloin Housing Clinic gets rid of undesirable tenants. I’ve repeatedly seen anecdotal evidence that these illegal practices are far more widespread than people realize, especially with pre-existing tenants (which are undesirable – rent controlled)
